Which Cooking Oil Should You Use While Cooking Chicken Parm?

Since I am so passionate about chicken parmigiana, I have decided to look at every component of this dish quite closely. In my previous blog posts, I talked about the different cheeses and tomatoes that are suitable to make this tempting dish. Now, let’s move on to cooking oils! You might know that oils are an important part of any dish. Starting from a simple salad to chicken parm, the type of oil you use will certainly affect the overall taste of the dish.


If you intend to make the finest and delicious chicken parm for you or your guests, make sure to choose the right cooking oils. Let’s look at five popular cooking oils that you can use to make a delicious chicken parm.

  • Coconut oil: You will find coconut oil in two forms: refined and unrefined (virgin). If you don’t want your chicken parm to have a strong taste of coconut, choose refined coconut oil, or else, you can go for virgin coconut oil. This is great for baking and roasting.

  • Avocado oil: Get the highest mono-saturated fats with avocado oil. This is an excellent choice for frying, grilling, searing, and roasting due to its high smoke point.

  • Vegetable oil: This oil has been a staple in almost all American households. Since this has a neutral taste, it is great for frying, sautéing, grilling, and baking.

  • Peanut oil: Mostly used in Asian cuisine and industries for bulk frying, it is a great option to add extra flavor to your breaded chicken cutlets.

  • Olive oil: If you are looking for a healthy oil alternative, you can go for extra virgin or light olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is used in salads and dressings whereas light olive oil can be used for grilling, sautéing, and roasting.
